Anonymous
A Middle English poem written circa 1300. It was later adapted by W. B. Yeats. This version is from the Oxford Book of English Verse 1250-1918.

ICH am of Irlaunde,
Ant of the holy londe
    Of Irlande.
Gode sire, pray ich the,
For of saynte charité,
Come ant daunce wyth me
    In Irlaunde.
